|1. The processing of the magazine begins when the H.M. editing team receives the articles written by diverse collaborators. Once transcribed into the computer, the next step is designing and organizing the photos and texts into the format.|
|2. Once the magazine is designed, it is sent to the imagesetter. The commands go right from the computer the magazine was designed on to another computer configured to the CtF (Computer to film).|
|3. With a laser beam, the imagesetter prints each pair of pages on the plates. Now they are ready to move over to the next machine.|
|4. The plates are then placed in the Offset machine, where printing in four colors begins.|
5. During the printing process, we have to calibrate the machine, make sure the margins are correct and verify that everything is in place.
|6. The technical work is done! The printed pages are here and are ready to start putting it together.|
|7. The next step is stapling each magazine and cutting the edges off.|
|8. The final step is packaging. It consists of putting the magazines in a plastic sheet with a label where each subscribers address written. Finally, the magazine is taken to the Post Office to be shipped off to the subscribers’ homes.|
